you could could use any of the following API's:

findwindow()
getwindow()
windowfrompoint()

then use getwindowtext and instr()

do you know the window class?  if not let me know and I will email you program that will tell you.  The class is something that will never change. So you can find the window according to it's class.  lets say the class is "net_scape" then you would find it like this:

dim netlong as long

netlong = findwindow("NET_SCAPE",vbnullstring )

if netlong <> 0 then
     dim tempstring as string
     tempstring = getwindowtext(netlong)
     dim test as intger
     test = instr(ucase$(tempstring),"NETSCAPE")
     if test <> 0 then 'we found the window
         showwindow netlong ,vbhide
     end if
end if

there are other ways to do this but you will need a program like spy which will tell you what the windows class is and who the parent window is. This information will help you find the window during run time.  Let me know if you need more help
